ESWN supports women in building careers, doing great science, and making an impact on the world. With more than 3,000 members worldwide, this community supports women in every discipline of the geosciences. ESWN became a non-profit organization in 2014, and today donor contributions make up its main source of support, allowing the dedicated women in ESWN to continue their successful activities and extend their impact in exciting new ways. In 2018, ESWN’s efforts were acknowledged by a Presidential Award for Excellence in Science, Mathematics, and Engineering Mentoring and in 2017 the American Meteorological Society recognized ESWN for “inspirational commitment to broadening the participation of women in the Earth sciences, providing a supportive environment for peer mentoring and professional development.” ESWN hosts a range of professional skill building workshops, networking activities, and provides spaces for women to interact and share resources on succeeding in a scientific career.
